Liberal-Conservative

Mr. SAM. HUGHES.

I can heartily endorse, on behalf of the opposition, the statements that have been made by the Minister of Militia, and I may say that I feel proud to know that the former winner of the King's prize was a Canadian citizen, even if he were not a Canadian born. I am not aware that it makes a difference whether a Canadian is born within the bounds of the Dominion or not, so long as he is a good Canadian citizen. We welcome all, they are

not strangers to this country, so long as they become good Canadian citizens. I was a little surprised to see the minister make that distinction.
